Did you know Italy is all about food ?! Well, Eataly is one of the wonderful places which is devoted to this passion.
Many products are on the pricey side but watch out for the special offers and the fruits and vegetables that are very reasonably priced. All products are responsibly picked from Italian farmers and producers as the store’s concept is all about sustainability and supporting local agriculture.
The thing I like about Eataly is that the quality of the products is excellent so if I cook a special dinner or just want to spoil myself, it’s difficult to go wrong here.
And if you don’t feel like cooking, conquer a table at one of the many food outlets within the store, each one specialized on a separate item like fish, ice cream, sandwiches, wine, etc. Don’t miss prosciutto dreamland on the 1st floor and take in all the smells, colors and the vibrant atmosphere of the place.
Eataly also organizes many events like concerts, courses (in Italian) or food fairs from specific regions in Italy so have a look on their website before you visit.
One more tip: if you are looking for a souvenir or present in general, the gift baskets from Eataly are great (you can take them pre-assembled or put one together on your own).
Eataly Smeraldo is right next to the popular bar strip “Corso Como”, at Porta Garibaldi.
